    I am looking for some soft polys to try, and was wondering what others were using. Post your current setup, as well as what racquet you use and what tension. Also post what your style or play is (topspin baseliner, counterpuncher, flat baseliner, serve/volley etc.)

    I win all my matches too, rarely lose...lol.

    Attacking baseliner
    Head FXP Mid Plus
    Have been using NRG2 mains 62 / Big Hitter Blue crosses 58

    The BHB german copoly lasts forever, NRG2 feels like nat gut, so i like the combo. Not sure if i like it better than full NRG2. Have been trying to figure out if i like it better than a full X1 biphase. Problem i'm having is x1 seems to play different depending on the conditions and/or how i'm hitting. When I'm playing relaxed and loose and going for my shots, the better and more powerful X1 feels. The more tense the situation or match is, the less powerful, harsher it feels. Cold weather seems to make it feel a bit harsher too, so it a bit of a moving target.

    Tdot, how does RIP Control 17 feel when used as a cross? I'm thinking about using thing string as a cross along with a soft poly.

    The rip control really softens up the string bed even though when compared to other multiflaments, it's considered to be pretty stiff. It also has great tension maintenance and durability. Don't hesitate, go for the Rip Control !
